Slackers catch-up or rather a busy moms catch up

We went to Disneyland when Noah got home from Iraq

We were able to stop and see the San Diego Temple on the Disney trip.

Disneyland with my sweetheart, we missed him so much

Noah got home and we were all in Heaven.
Braddoc reached for him and said "Dada" over and over again, it was perfect, we were so worried that he would not remember Noah but he was in heaven, he had his daddy back.

We went to Alaska to visit Noahs family while he was gone.

While Noah was gone I went to alaska to visit my in-laws for a month and a half. Noah got home a week after I got home, week after Noah got home we spent a week at Disneyland and Seaworld, a week trying to back to life, and then a week of Noah going back to work while I tried to get the house in order for the mass amount of busyness that had taken up the last few months. I start my own jewelry business selling lia sophia jewelry. And then Last week we got a very sad phone call telling us that Noahs father had passed away unexpectedly and we flew up to Alaska (the military paid for the whole thing, THANK YOU for that wonderful thing) and we are here now trying to get everything taken care of for the family. Landon turned 3 July 31st, Braddoc turned 1 on August 8th, I turn 25 on August 18th and Noah turned 23 on Sept. 24th. So here are some update pictures of our whirlwind last fews months.

Also Braddoc finally started crawling the week after Noah got back from Iraq. We joked that he was waiting for daddy to get home, and I guess he really was. He also started pulling himself up this past week to a standing possession. Made my heart melt when I went in to get him out of his room and he was standing in bed, my baby is finally growing up. :o)

What a fun couple of months for you guys (with the exception of Noah's dad passing away, of course). I'm glad Noah is home and safe! Cute pictures, I've been waiting for a massive update!

Sad news, mixed in with such fun times. I'm sure your family is stronger going through this past year, with all the high's and low's.
